Union City, Calif. – January 19, 2017 – Ariat International, the leader in innovative equestrian performance footwear and apparel, today introduced the Catalyst VX Defiant, a revolutionary new hunting boot, designed specifically for the needs of outdoor consumers.

The Catalyst VX Defiant joins an already impressive line-up of quality footwear within the Ariat Hunt collection. Created with the true outdoorsman in mind, the Catalyst VX Defiant boot is sure to be a staple for all outdoor enthusiasts this hunting season.

Engineered for the hunt or the trail, the high-performance Catalyst VX Defiant offers rugged innovation for any adventure. Technologies include Cobalt™VX to protect, stabilize and support, GORE-TEX® premium waterproof construction to keep dry and Vibram® MONT outsole with exclusive Ariat traction tread design to maintain performance at extremely low temperatures.

Made of quality, full-grain leather with durable hardware, the Catalyst VX Defiant is built to last. This sturdy boot also boasts a great fit thanks to an anatomically contoured last and Ariat’s unique Cobalt VX foot bed with arch support. Additional comfort features include a high-rebound PU midsole to dissipate impact and Thinsulate™ Ultra insulation to ensure optimal warmth and comfort in environments ranging from the grasslands to rocky alpine peaks.

Visit Booth 10020 this week at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas to preview a first look at the Catalyst VX Defiant.
